I couldn't agree more about the students. Ridiculous.

I appreciate the support the students are showing, but I do want and expect more. I've been taking my 5 year old to the games since last year, and we don't leave early. She even made it through the entire Baylor game last year (2 rain delays totaling over 2 hours). If my 5 year old daughter can make it, I don't see why the students have to leave early. Please stick around, enjoy the game, and support our student athletes! Rock Chalk Jayhawk KU!!!!
